Hard to confident about any of these so a purely speculative vote goes the way of ACTION FRONT. He posted a much-improved effort when beaten just over four lengths at Newmarket last time and could go close with a similar effort in this lesser company. C&D winner Frederick William ran as though something was amiss on his latest start and Decana is 10lb higher than when scoring at Southwell in December. Phonic disappointed over track and trip last time and Emrani ran a shocker at Pontefract having gone very close on his return to action at Haydock before that.
